Australian T3 - - HYPE -

Damn! That’s one gor­geous TV.

Agreed. In fact, Bang & Olufsen is mar­ket­ing the new BeoVi­sion Eclipse, de­signed with in­put from LG, as “the de­fin­i­tive TV”, thanks to its cut­ting-edge 4K HDR OLED screen tech and what B&O de­scribes as “the world’s best TV sound”. That may seem like a bold claim, but this lux­ury telly is hous­ing some rather im­pres­sive tech goods.

So it’s a TV and a sound sys­tem?

Pre­cisely. The BeoVi­sion Eclipse’s SoundCen­tre fea­tures a 450-watt, three-chan­nel speaker sys­tem serv­ing up a pow­er­ful stereo per­for­mance and speech-op­ti­mised au­dio. As you’ve al­ready spot­ted, this op­u­lent telly pulls dou­ble-duty as a wire­less mu­sic sys­tem – con­nect up to eight speak­ers for a sur­round-sound so­lu­tion that’ll make you drool – with on­board streaming sup­port from Ap­ple AirPlay, Blue­tooth and Chrome­cast. You can also ac­cess in­te­grated mu­sic ser­vices, such as Spo­tify Con­nect, Deezer and TuneIn.

What about the pic­ture?

The TV uses LG’s lat­est OLED panel, wrapped in an an­odised alu­minium-cov­ered speaker and boast­ing en­hanced HDR per­for­mance and Dolby Vi­sion. It also uses cut­ting-edge pixel dim­ming­con­trol tech to pro­duce deep blacks and an ex­panded colour gamut. Nav­i­gat­ing con­tent is easy with the in­clu­sion of LG’s we­bOS 3.5, pro­vid­ing ac­cess to streaming ser­vices in­clud­ing Net­flix and Ama­zon Video, and the BeoVi­sion One re­mote.

When is this TV com­ing out?

The B&O BeoVi­sion Eclipse is avail­able to buy right now in two sizes: 55 inches ($13,990) and 65 inches ($19,990).
